MineWall Explanation Schema

MineWall is a Layer 7 mitigation toolset for protocol specifications like Minecraft. It uses forensic data from multiple providers and experience working with 4 figure player Minecraft networks to mitigate bot attacks, spam pings, bungee crash attempts, etc.

It is mainly targeted at Minecraft servers, or applications having a similar networking footprint as the former. However, it may work well for other applications where proxies are the main tool used for attacks. It is highly recommended to test pre-deployment, and to take proper measures to optimize for your own end use-case.

A 3 layered approach

The application is comprised of 3 different layers of mitigation, depending on the validity of the source user:

  • The whitelist is used for IPs that are already validated as safe users.
  • The graylist is based on low risk countries that rarely are the source of bots. The behavior is to limit the connection speed with a permissive ratelimit.
  • The graylist (default) behavior is to strongly limit incoming connections via strict ratelimit.
